“Off Their Rockers” 1st/3rd Spring Musical and other exciting musical opportunities!
February 28, 2019
Our 1st/3rd grade students are excited to working on their songs for their upcoming Spring program called “Off Their Rockers”. The story takes place in a senior center where all is quiet and calm and perhaps a bit boring; that is until the Center Director decides to use music and dance to bring fun and excitement into the lives of the seniors. We look forward to presenting our musical on Thursday, March 21st at 2:00 p.m. for our grandparent(s) and school students and again Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in the gym for their families. It’s sure to be a ‘rocking’ good time.
Meanwhile, our PreK, Kindergarten and 2nd grade classes have been learning about the musical families of instruments as we prepare them for the Omaha Symphony’s Mission Imagination concert which will take place at St. Pius X / St. Leo (Parish Center) on Tuesday, April 23rd. In the concert, Mozart has lost his memory and with the help of the students, the orchestra will use the musical concepts (high/low, fast/slow, loud/soft) to help bring Mozart’s memory back.
Our 4th grade students have traditionally been gearing up for their Recorder Linkup program. This years theme is “The Orchestra Swings”. We have really enjoyed learning about great swing music and composers like Gershwin, Fitzgerald, and Ellington. Due to our Spring Break schedule, our 4th grade students will not be able to attend the concert at the Holland this year but instead a smaller ensemble of symphony members will be coming to our school to host the same concert with our students on Wednesday, March 27th.
The 8th grade students have been studying the various musical eras and composers from Medieval to Romantic era. Students have also been to the computer lab to create their own musical piece in Garage band.
